Here, I'll give you a hint...
That's right. The Pioneer Woman herself, Ree Drummond, is going to be in Oklahoma City for a book signing and I'm going! Stacey and Chery are you up for a little road trip!?!

The recipe is super easy!
1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
8 oz. Cream Cheese
1 pkg. McCormick Spinach Dip
1 15 oz. jar Tostitos Spinach Dip
1 can artichokes -optional
1 can water chestnuts-optional
Top with extra Parmesan and Mozarella Cheese.
You can serve this hot or cold.
Now I haven't tried putting this under the broiler and eating it hot - but, I'm sure that melted cheese would be wonderful!

Of all of my Royal Copley pieces, the dogs are one of my favorites! The dog with his paw raised, the dog with the cello and the black and white dog in the center are probably the ones with the most value! That black and white dog in the center is actually a lamp base! I may even get brave one day and attempt to convert it back into a lamp - I hear that there are even kits out there for doing that!
Thanks for stopping by!
Any comments or suggestions as to how I could improve my mosaics are always welcome! This is only my second attempt at a mosaic. I am using Picasa 3 and I played a little more with some of its features! I enjoyed it even more this week!
Thanks Mary from Little Red House for hosting such a fun event!
For more mosaics - head on over and visit Mary's blog!

This week, I thought that I would share what is inside my Hoosier style cabinet (mine is really made by Monarch). When you open up the top right set of doors you will find my set of Rosemary, Dutch Rose, amber depression glass. This was made by the Federal Glass Co. between 1935-1937. This was one of my very first purchases, at my very first auction years ago!

This weekend we took my only 2 grandchildren to the local elementary school to fly a kite - they've never flown one before! Now, they were pretty excited, considering they had no clue what they were about to do!
O.K. Jaden - now hold this....
He hopes that he is doing it right!
Keira was wondering just what am I suppose to be doing?!
Poor Uncle Kale had to give up his sunglasses because 'Grandma, the sun keeps closing my eyes!'
It was amazing really. You see my oldest son who is 26 started at this school when it opened! Actually, all of my children attended this elementary school. The boys just kept saying that the playground just seemed so much bigger back then. Does time really change things all that much? It just seems like yesterday that I walked them onto that very playground for their first days of school. Really - it seems like just yesterday!

I hope that you can't tell, but really, this is my very first mosaic!
Oh, I struggled for sure! But, here is my finally product!
I guess that I am happy with my very first effort!
I hope that it gets easier and quicker!
Thanks for stopping by - and now I am on my way to visit other mosaics courtesy of Mary at Little Red House! I hope that you found this! I apologize for the mistake with the #55 post and taking you to an Aug. 24th Blue Monday post. OMG! - can you tell I'm still relatively new to all of this! I just saw my blog address and forgot that I had to change the URL address!! I tried to delete it and couldn't! Again, I apolgize!
